Dear Reader,   

"An invention has to make sense in the world it finishes in, not in the world it started." - Tim O’Reilly

IITKGP faculty and students engage in research by being both innovative and entrepreneurial. This week's stories highlight one such invention by a PhD student and how IITKGP is nurturing inventors and entrepreneurship in a special ecosystem. We call upon you to consider supporting research and entrepreneurship at IITKGP through your contributions to an initiative of your choice.

We always look forward to hearing about your entrepreneurial journeys as well. Write to us at meenakshi@iitkgpfoundation.org
